Hi, Firefox is displaying letters with accents (e.g. letters from Spanish words) incorrectly as Cyrillic letters. This makes a lot of webpages difficult to read. This does not seem to be happening all the time. Neither does it seem to happen in other apps other than Firefox. I have my preferred languages for displaying webpages in Firefox set as En-GB, en, es-es, in that order. Ditto for my wider system settings. In terms of my wider system keyboards I do have Russian installed, in order of preference this is gb > us > es > ru. I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to ensure Spanish and other Latin letters display correctly?

When I go to amazon and attempt to use the 'read online' facility the kindle cloud reader seems to load then puts up an 'Unable to load content' message. The same thing happens when I try to use the 'look inside' feature while browsing the kindle store.

When hardware-accelerated Webrender is enabled, the stuttering while watching a video and scrolling is incredible. Not only that, moving tabs to the left or right is laggy too. A workaround to fix this is `gfx.webrender.software` to true. Can anybody explain me why Firefox is using the GPU but is slower than when it's not using it? (Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti, i9 9900k, Arch Linux x64)

For quite some time I've been using a userChrome.css code to remove the border from the URL bar when focused. However, I made a new theme of my own and now I need the border back BUT!!! I need it to be visible all the time - whether the URL bar is on focus or not, and also I want it to have a color of my own choosing. I already know the code for the color (#E2B582), but I have no idea what to type in the CSS file in order to have the border appear the way I want it.

Hello! Just installed Ubuntu 20.04.4 on my laptop and now find that I'm not able to watch some YouTube videos on Firefox 97. It seems mainly just live streams that I can't watch. When I go to one it shows "Your browser can't play this video...Learn more" in the video window. Clicking Learn More takes me to a page that doesn't explain what the problem is. Any idea what the fix might be? The same videos play just fine on other devices on my network. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I need developer tools, for some tasks. F12 shortcut is fine. I have ubuntu linux, CTRL+SHIFT+C is used for copy from terminal. I want copy something from firefox to terminal. Every time I press CTRL+SHIFT+C developer tools appear instead of coping text. Pressing CTRL+SHIFT+C again does not close developer tools. So need to press F12. Select text one more a press CTRL+C. Is it possible to disable CTRL+SHIFT+C shortcut? Is there any fork with this shortcut disabled?

On needing a restart after an update. The wording comes off as rude and snide. "one small thing' like what's your problem? This being ""cheeky"" or however you call it, makes it feel that you're trivializing what I maybe doing. Further inaccuracies are present in the language. "We" aren't doing anything, it is the software that is acting. Which we know, has no agency.

Unlike most of you, I don't have a PhD in Computer Science, and have no idea what a CSS file is, where it is located, and how to edit it. So if you got a simple step-by-step solution, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you! Alex

Firefox update to version 91.6.1esr broke my tab bar

I have my tab bar below the other toolbars. I have a userChrome.css to help set things up the way I use them. System is Linux 64-bit.

Just updated Firefox from a few-months-older version to 91.6.1esr from the official repos and my tab bar is now blank. No tabs, no nothing. When I open a "new tab" I just get the new page; the "Back" arrow is greyed out, so it presumably is a net tabsheet. But I have no tab to get back to the previous page, all is blank.

The tab bar is there at the top OK in Troubleshooting Mode. En/dis-abling all my extensions etc. makes no difference in either mode.

Fixes for related issues tend to focus on userChrome.css but none offers a straight code sample to fix this issue. Here is an extract from mine, I have no idea whether any of it is relevant:

#nav-bar { /* main toolbar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important;
  box-shadow: none !important;
}
#PersonalToolbar { /* bookmarks toolbar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important;
}
#TabsToolbar { /* tab bar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important;
  padding-top: 0 !important;
}

/* FIX TO MOVE TAB BAR BELOW TOOLBAR /*

#navigator-toolbox toolbar:not(#nav-bar):not(#toolbar-menubar) {
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 10 !important;
}

#TabsToolbar {
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1000 !important;
  display: block !important;
  position: absolute !important;
  bottom: 0 !important;
  width: 100vw !important;
}

#tabbrowser-tabs {
  width: 100vw !important;
}

*|*:root:not([chromehidden*="toolbar"]) #navigator-toolbox {
  padding-bottom: calc(var(--tab-min-height) + 1px) !important; /*adjust*/
}

/* Firefox 65-73 */
*|*:root[tabsintitlebar]:not([inFullscreen="true"]):not([sizemode="maximized"])
 #toolbar-menubar[autohide="true"] ~ #TabsToolbar{
  bottom: var(--tab-min-height) !important;
  padding-top: calc(var(--tab-min-height) - 20px) !important; /*adjust*/
}

/* TABS: height */
*|*:root {
  --tab-toolbar-navbar-overlap: 0px !important;
  --tab-min-height: 25px !important; /*adjust or omit to use density*/
}

*|*:root #tabbrowser-tabs {
  --tab-min-width: 80px !important; /*adjust or omit to use default*/
}

#TabsToolbar {
  height: var(--tab-min-height) !important;
  margin-bottom: 1px !important;
  box-shadow: ThreeDShadow 0 -1px inset, -moz-dialog 0 1px !important; /*omit*/
  background-color: var(--toolbar-bgcolor) !important;
  color: var(--toolbar-color) !important;
}

I am on Arch Linux using i3. I have been using Firefox for a while but recently switched from Nautilus to pcmanfm as my file manager. Now Firefox is unable to save any file or do anything else that requires opening the file manager. Running it through the terminal I get:

"Can't open portal file chooser: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.portal.Desktop was not provided by any .service files"

I have xdg-desktop-portal installed and have tried xdg-desktop-portal-{gnome, gtk, and kde}. I have also tried setting widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal to both true and false, neither of which changed anything. Reinstalling Nautilus also doesn't fix it. Does anybody know what could be causing this?

Hi, after install new version of Firefox to version 98 on my Linux, firefox opened all libreoffice documents as writeable. Older version (97) open document as readable and you have to click on Edit Document for work with them. At now, when the document is writeable and opened from same tmp directory, you can save document to this tmp directory and and lost your data (work). Its possible to repair it? I try the same in Thunderbird (91.7) and there is Ok. All of opened documents are only readable. Dr.
